Carrying extra weight than your ideal weight could raise your risk of heart attack by more than a quarter, even if you are otherwise healthy.

Researchers have found that being overweight or obese increases coronary heart disease (CHD) risk to that person by up to 28 per cent compared to those with a healthy bodyweight, even if they have healthy blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

The findings add to a growing body of evidence that suggests being ‘fat but fit’ is a myth, and that people should target to maintain a healthy body weight within a healthy range.

Storing excess fat in the body is linked with a number of metabolic changes, including increased blood sugar, high blood pressure and altered cholesterol levels, which can lead to poor health and disease.

However, previous studies have revealed a group of overweight people who appear to lack the adverse health effects of being excess weight, leading to them being classified as ‘metabolically healthy obese’ in the medical terminology, and ‘fat but fit’ in the media.

According to World Health Organization definitions Body weight was classified. People with  body mass index (BMI) more than 30 were classified as obese, while those with a BMI of 25–30 were classified as overweight, and 18.5–25 as normal weight. More than half of the control group (63 per cent) were female, with an average BMI of 26.1 and an average age of 53.6.
